Information about this exciting field:
Every building, room, and space has the potential to come alive with possibilities when fashioned by the mind and hand of the Interiors professional. A bland, not-quite-so-appealing nook or cranny (or grand ballroom for that matter) can be completely transformed through details, designs, and creativity applied according to a client’s specifications.
